  • Publication number: 20190258205
    Abstract: A data generating device sets an initial candidate solution of an intensity spectrum function, a phase spectrum function, and an initial temperature and a cooling rate, generates a neighborhood solution, transforms a first waveform function of a frequency domain including the neighborhood solution and the phase spectrum function into a second waveform function of a time domain including a time-intensity waveform function and a time-phase waveform function and calculates an evaluation value representing a degree of difference between the time-intensity waveform function and the desired time-intensity waveform, sets the neighborhood solution as an n-th candidate solution for a certain probability, and lowers the temperature on the basis of the cooling rate. A decrease in the temperature acts in a direction in which the probability P is lowered when the evaluation value of the neighborhood solution is worse than the evaluation value of the candidate solution.

  • Patent number: 10381372
    Abstract: Void formation in tungsten lines in a three-dimensional memory device can be prevented by providing polycrystalline aluminum oxide liners in portions of lateral recesses that are laterally spaced from backside trenches by a distance grater than a predefined lateral offset distance. Tungsten nucleates on the polycrystalline aluminum oxide liners prior to nucleating on a metallic liner layer. Thus, tungsten layers can be deposited from the center portion of each backside recess, and the growth of tungsten can proceed toward the backside trenches. By forming the tungsten layers without voids, structural integrity of the three-dimensional memory device can be enhanced.
